Product Description

Promises Keep

Book 2 in the Promises series by Sarah McCarty.

1869 Wyoming Territory

Being kidnapped into a bordello has a way of changing a woman’s focus. On the day Mara Kincaid escapes the Pleasure Emporium, she vows to start living for herself. Rebuilding her life isn’t easy as the town isn’t fond of reformed fallen doves, but she’s a Kincaid and Kincaids are known for their stubbornness. She’s successful right up until the notorious ex-marshal Cougar McKinnley comes into town.

As big as a mountain, dark as sin, and wearing a reputation as deadly as the knife strapped to his thigh, McKinnley is a man who knows what he wants. By rights, she should be shaking in her shoes when he approaches her, but when the powerful half-breed turns his dark gold eyes on her, it isn’t fear that has Mara trembling, but rather an overwhelming desire to be the kind of woman Cougar needs to satisfy his deepest desires.

“Those familiar with this author know she’s the queen of writing fresh, sensual westerns with characters that will remain with you long after the last page is turned.”—A Romance Review

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the first in the series 30 Dec 2011
By RedFury - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The first book in the series (Promises Linger) wowed me so much that I immediately bought the next two. And I have to admit, if I hadn't loved the first one so much, and if I hadn't already liked the character of Cougar, I may not have gotten through the Kindle sample chapters to the rest of the book.

In the first chapter, there's a description of a rimming. (If you're not sure what that is, Google it. With caution.)** That is a usually a major turn off for me, but I kept going. And I'm glad I did.

This book was not as good as the first one, but I think it's because of my own level of discomfort with some of the subject matter. In the book description, you're told that Mara is a "soiled dove," but it doesn't explain that she was not actually a whore. She'd been sold into prostitution by her father to settle a debt, and then drugged and put in a room for a man to take her virginity. That man is Cougar, the male lead in this story, except he didn't know she was drugged. He does help her escape when he realizes what happened, but she doesn't remember that he's the man who "raped" her. She later marries him, still not knowing he's the one. But Cougar likes it rough, and it turns out that Mara does, too. And that's where I was a little uncomfortable throughout the book. Not that they liked it rough (I mean, really, who doesn't?), but that as a rape victim she found pleasure in the roughness.

This book, just like the first one, was hot, just not as good.

**The rimming happened more than once in the book, as did anal sex, so if that's a deal breaker for you, this isn't the book for you.

Such a well written engaging series. Absolutely adding this author to my favorites. Engaging characters, great/hot romance. LOVE the book length, so tired of short reads.

4.0 out of 5 stars See my review at Promises Prevail 5 Oct 2013
By curious about everything - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The review I submitted for Promises Prevail applies for this book also. One of the books in this series has a single young woman painting a portrait of the "minister" she has a crush on. Not have first hand knowledge of the "man parts" she used a friend's baby boy as a guide to painting the "man parts." That was the humor in that book. Sorry, I don't remember which title it is. One should purchase all three and have a read a thon.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh 9 July 2013
By KatieV - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I think the book was too long and the scene where she finds out he's the one who raped her was very anti-climactic. For me, that was a big thing, but it just fizzled out....

I like some erotica, but the more I read it, the more I realize that it's the emotions I'm more interested in. I started skipping sex scenes at some point. Also, the focus on anal was a little much for me. The end annoyed me too. I'm a supporter of women's lib, but I don't want a soapbox moment in a historical romance.
5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this book! 29 Nov 2013

Cougar, OMG I want him for myself! I knew he would be all that and more after I first met him in Promises Linger. Even though this book has a dark beginning, I knew Sarah would work it all out. Her heroes have to learn lessons along the way, but I loved him the entire trip. I will reread this again and again.
